- 10 jalapeno peppers halved and deseeded
- 8 oz of cream cheese I used a dairy-free cream cheese
- 1/4 c fresh parsley
- 3/4 c gluten-free tortilla or bread crumbs
Mix together 1/2 of crumbs and cream cheese. Once combined add in the parsley.
Stuff each pepper with this mixture.
Gently press the tops of the peppers into the remaining 1/4 c of crumbs to create the top coating.
Cook in an air fryer at 370 degrees F for 6-8 minutes OR in a conventional oven at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes.
Let cool and ENJOY!
